The 8-day bus tour ‘Liberation of The Netherlands’ is organised to celebrate 75 years since the liberation of the Netherlands.
The trip will start in Bruges and finish in Apeldoorn. This tour takes you through the history of the two largest World War II operations: the Battle of the Western Scheldt and Operation Market Garden.
Everyone is welcome to sign up for this historic tour.
